Dudley came to us from Valencia shelter in NM and he was a hot mess. Picked up as a stray by animal control, this boy had either been on his own for a very long time or somebody was just straight up starving him. He weighed in at 27 lbs. There was just nothing but flesh hanging off a skeleton boxer boy.
Either way, somebody has not been nice to this boy.
You've heard oh how sweet and good but damn so aunry at the same time--well that is our boy. In the right setting you will not find a better, well mannered boxer boy. He will just chill and hang out.
Dudley is housebroken, crate trained - will run right in when you tell him to kennel. He can also be left out while you are gone and will probably be in the same spot he was when you left. He knows commands but will try to act like he doesn't hear you at times. His leash skills could use a little work as he will try to go where he wants.
So what is the right setting? He would thrive in a calmer, quiet home where there's not alot of people coming and going. Simple is best for Dudley. He would love to be the only 4 legged member. Now, he can and does do ok with female dogs but would prefer to not live with one. He likes his own space.
He has lived with kids from toddler to teen but he's just not comfortable with the little ones - they tend to make him really nervous.
